    If you had posted this earlier, I would have brought some to BA today and let you try them out. Get a .22 can first or you will likely be disappointed. Rifle and handgun cans are great, but a high performance rimfire can is amazing.

    I've been most impressed with my .22 can. With subsonic ammo, it is very quiet. With supersonic ammo, you still get a crack from the bullet.

    My .30 can, an AAC Cyclone, has been great. With a 308 bolt gun, it is very quiet at the gun. No boom, but you still hear the bullet passing obstacles and targets down the range. I need any ear protection with the bolt gun, and it reduces the recoil on the bolt gun to a 223 AR range. The semi-auto's are a little louder at the gun and throw a bit of crap back into your face. Using this can on a 223 AR, it is quiet at the gun if you are shooting outside; if you are shooting from inside a building, you still need ear protection. The bullet is pretty loud going downrange. The .30 can with subsonic 300 Blackout is very quiet.

    I have a .45 AAC Ti-Rant for my pistols. I was expecting to be very impressed with a .45 pistol, but not so much. Outside, it is fairly quiet at the gun. Inside, it rang my ears a bit. It was quieter on a .45 XDM than it was on a .45 1911. I tried wetting the suppressor down and it got very quiet for about 10 or 15 rounds. I adapted this can to a 300 Blackout and a 9mm AR pistol and it was pretty quiet on both guns. With what I know now, I wish I had spent the money on the pistol suppressor on another .30 rifle can instead.

    None of the center fire rifles or pistols sound like the movies, lol.

    Fat Boys does. I've also heard of Bear Beams Firearms, but have never been there.

    I bought mine at Sports World. They took care of the trust paperwork and had a pretty good selection when I purchased. Once I started spending some money at Sports World, the customer service improved quite a bit. No complaints.

    I'll bet! Hell... I was in there a few times and could barely get anyone to speak to me, EVER. I once bought a couple of holsters and after waiting I dunno how long standing in front of the cash register someone finally came over, rang it up, ran my CC and walked off - all without speaking a single word to me, except the total due. No hi, no thanks, no you're welcome, nothing.

    But I can tell ya, the Fat Boys have gotten a SHITload of money out of me since then. ;)
